Scenic Wedding Venues

Scenic Wedding Venues

Looking for a beautiful wedding venue for your big day? We've rounded up the most scenic wedding venues in Australia from private beachfront resorts and hilltop Airbnbs to luxury garden estates. The common theme? They're all situated in absolutely stunning locations.

If epic views, a great atmosphere and a breathtaking location are top of your wedding-planning bucket list, these amazing wedding spots deliver the goods!

Australia's best wedding venues when it comes to scenery and surrounds are not limited to just high end budgets. You'll find plenty of affordable options listed below (some under $120/pp), with most priced in the range of $160 - $250 per person.

A lot of the wedding venues listed below are 3 day hire places where some or all of your guests can stay onsite, enjoying the location for an extended stay with you. These locations include resorts you can hire for your private use, off-the-grid Airbnb style properties, farms, wineries and estates.

While the venue hire fee at these venues is often 5 figures, they're actually more affordable to hire than they sound. That's because the hire fee (the venue's minimum spend) includes accommodation and venues usually facilitate options for guests to pay their own way. This leaves you to service the food & beverage bill, while most of the venue hire is covered by guests.

Typically, the most beautiful wedding venues in Australia require a minimum of 2 days hire, particularly if you're utilising onsite accommodation. Understandably, these places are in high demand and book out well in advance of 12 months. We recommend making enquiries early. The deposit to lock in your date is usually up to 30% of the booking. 

Here is our list of the top 20 scenic wedding venues in Australia.
